  No kidding.  My mail software has the pleasure of rejecting spam
  attempted delivered to message IDs from 1994.  I wonder who bought these
  "addresses" and if they are smart enough to figure out that they were
  ripped off.  Probably not, since they bought address lists in the first
  place.  Ironically, it has mostly been address lists that have been
  "marketed" to ancient messages IDs.  (I just _had_ to allow delivery
  (while it was still rejected as far as the sender was concerned) and have
  a look at what the pathetic losers tried to pander. :)
